SU Four You Birthday Wishes with Perfect Pennants

It’s time for another challenge at The Dynamic Duos! This week’s Black Tie challenge #99 includes Rich Razzleberry and Black with a dessert option of Gold. I kept it clean and simple since I needed a male birthday card that was easily mailable.

SU Four You Perfect Pennants Chevron DD

When I was in school, I was always keen on instructions but this last week proves I am slipping, first not watching the ombre tutorial for the Friday Mashup and now…I did not see the gold option until I was uploading on our DD site and saw Annette’s and Julie’s gilded cards! Ooops…gold would have been easy to incorporate, too. But now, any of you who don’t add it will have company!

Card Recipe:
STAMPS: SU Four You, SU Perfect Pennants (star)
INK: SU Rich Razzleberry
PAPER: SU Whisper White, SU Basic Black, SU Rich Razzleberry, SU SAB 2013 Sycamore Street DSP (retired)
ACCESSORIES: SU Candy Dots (Ha- out of black ones so they are white ones colored with a black Sharpie!)

So, will you go the gold? I bet many will…can’t wait to see what you come up with for this challenge. Head over to the Dynamic Duos to see what the fantastic Design Team has come up to inspire you this week.

SU Crosses of Hope with Chevron Punch Lattice

It’s time to SPRING into Tara’s Friday Mashup Challenge # 154.

1. Create a Spring Card.
2. Use Scattered embossing by using a stylus to selectively emboss portions of an embossing folder.
3. Mash It Up with a Spring Card with Scattered embossing!


I was in Easter mode this week for my classes so I thought I would share one since Spring brings Easter with it. I am sure you have been seeing a lot of Chevron Punch lattices over blogland. Well, I tried my hand at one or two. You just punch a continuous line of chevrons out of a 8 1/2″ by 1 1/4″ strip of card stock. Repeat with another piece. Then you lay one on top of the other with the chevrons going in opposite directions. Then simply interlace them and gently spread to create the lattice. I used the Little Leaves Sizzlet for the leaves and the Petite Petals for the flowers on this card. I also used the lovely retired SU set Crosses of Hope. The Hardwood Stamp is the perfect background for the lattice and the cross, don’t you think?

I also made one with the Woodgrain background stamp that has a finer line image on it. I used the Bird Builder punch of the leaves on this one.

After making both of them…
I think I would use the Hardwood background with the Bird Builder leaves
on my next card…


I sure hope you play along with the Friday Mashup this week. As you can see, I did not mash it up this week, will you? I would love to see it!
